Women continue to be victims of honour killings across the country. Recently, a 21-year-old woman was killed after her parents force fed her mango juice spiked with pesticide in Nanjangud, Mysore.
In another macabre case, family members hacked their daughter to death in Unnao after she was reportedly caught in a compromising position with another youth. The DM has ordered her body to be exhumed and sent for post mortem.
